The name “Pallas” (Greek Πάλλας, translit. Pallas) was sometimes interpreted as meaning “maiden” in antiquity, as it was a common epithet of the goddess Athena. Other early sources derived the name from the Greek verb pallō, meaning “shake.” However, the true etymology of the name is unknown and may be pre-Greek.
Pallas Πάλλας (translit. Pallas)
[PAL-uhs] /ˈpæl əs/
Pallas, like his brothers Astraeus and Perses, does not have a mythology of his own. Instead, he serves a genealogical function as the husband of Styx and the father of a handful of divine personifications.
